Deepa Mehta to direct Rushdie’s ‘Midnight’s Children’


Deepa Mehta’s adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s celebrated novel Midnight’s Children, will have Kangna Ranaut join the ranks of Freida Pinto and Aishwarya Rai.

Kangna has been chosen to play a character called Emerald. When Deepa Mehta saw Kangna in Anurag Basu’s Gangster, she immediaitely knew this was her Emerald. Described in Rushdie’s book as pretty and cryptic, Emerald was one of the toughest and easiest roles to cast for Deepa. Tough, because the character’s physicality and emotional graph is so precisely described in the novel that it could only be played by a specific kind of actress.

As Deepa told a friend, “There were second and third choices for other characters. For Emerald I only wanted Kangna.”

Kangna will play a character married to a Pakistani politician observing the rise and fall of leaders and dreamers from the fringes. The role requires a silently eloquent actress.

Speaking on the matter Deepa says, “Yes, Kangna has agreed to be part of Midnight’s Children. I think she’s a wonderful actress, not quite like anyone else that I’ve worked with.”
